Carpets get ripped up, drywall gets ripped out, furniture and appliances that have been soaked are tossed out. The house get broken down to the timbers and then rebuilt due to mold concerns. Very expensive. Usually only after hurricanes.

What happens in Cambodia?

Flooding in Cambodia leaves at least 11 dead
By Associated Press
Published: 08:11 BST, 11 October 2020 | Updated: 08:31 BST, 11 October 2020
PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) - Flooding in Cambodia has killed at least 11 people since the beginning of the month, a disaster official said Sunday.

Seasonal rains were made worse by a tropical storm, which caused flash floods in several provinces last week, said Khun Sokha, a spokesman for the National Committee for Disaster Management.

Among the 11 dead, 10 have reportedly drowned in floodwaters and one was killed by lightning, he said. Several hundred families have been evacuated to higher ground, he said.

On Friday, Prime Minister HE ordered local authorities to mobilize assistance to those affected.

The Department of Public Works and Transportation on Sunday banned trucks from roads that were inundated in two worst-hit provinces in the country's northwest, Battambang and Pursat.

Cambodia to Face More Flash Floods as Rain Continues
AKP Phnom Penh, October 10, 2020 --

More rain, from moderate to heavy, is expected to come across Cambodia for some more days, therefore the country will face continued flash floods.

The weather forecast was updated by the Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology (MOWRAM) and made known to the public via a press release issued today.

The north and northwestern provinces, next to Dangrek and Cardamom mountain ranges, would be the most affected, the same source stressed.

At the same time, MOWRAM added, the coastal areas would face rain, strong wind and high waves.

The ministry thus called upon the public to increase their vigilance to avoid any possible accidents.

In the weekly Cabinet Meeting on Friday, Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo HE ordered relevant ministries and institutions and sub-national administrations to take necessary measures to timely assist the affected people so as to reduce to the maximum the difficulties and the impact on people's properties and lives.

Flash floods have been hitting Battambang, Pursat, Banteay Meanchey, Oddar Meanchey, Preah Vihear and Kampong Speu provinces by inundating schools, administrative offices and other infrastructures, as well as rice fields. National Committee for Disaster Management and other concerned authorities have inspected the flood situation in the affected areas and distributed relief to affected people.
